I saw your problem about the power steering sticking I have found that most people never change the power steering fluid and this causes problems. I use dexron 3 transmission fluid and I change it every 25,000 miles. All I do is get a pump from the auto store I pump out the fluid then I put in some dexron 3 transmission fluid then I let the car run then I empty out the power steering pump 2-3 more times to get all the old fluid out approximately 1.5 quarts of dexron 3 transmission fluid. I also do my Lexus LS400 with the same dexron fluid for the power steering. I put 398,000 on a toyota cressida and had the same power steering and transmission just by changing both at 20,000 miles hopes this helps.

Re: Please Help! Problem with 2005 4 cyl Camry LE [dom11021]......
Tomorrow, I plan to take my new 2005 4 cyc Camry XLE for the exact same type of malfunction into my Toyota dealer. The only difference being, it has done this for 3 months(and never did it again) and at first I kept thinking it was something with the "panic buttons" on one of the sets of our keys, but now I know that is not the case.....today I have duplicated this malfunction enough to know it has something to do with the trunk or hood sensors/latches....since I have been off from work for 2 weeks and I know what I have touched before the malfunction started again.
Will keep you posted if I or the dealer comes across a solution.

My warning lights for my emergency brake and lights keep coming on. I checked all my lights and they come on, and with my emergency break I checked the connection between the sensor and the engage lever and it worked fine. Anyone have any ideas?

Check the brake fluid level, and if that's okay, then it's probably the brake pades. Happened on my 93 after I pulled a 180. I initially thought it was the parking brake sensors, but after I couldn't figure it out, I took it to my machanic, and he said that the brake pads were worn.

I don't know what the code means however, I have the same model and year and I had a problem with the wiring harnes in the trunk. There seems to be a design flaw where the tail light harnes can be worn through by the trunk hinge. I had to get in the trunk to see it.

#4194 of 5279 2001 Camry Solara engine/transmission problem
Nov 08, 2005 (1:06 pm)
My mother owns a 2001 Toyota Camry Solara. Her car is an automatic and only has about 47000 miles on it. For some reason while going slow or at a stand still, her car will buckle and shake, then cut out. She has spent loads of money with the Toyota Dealership and other auto mechanics that can't figure out the problem. What's worst about this is that she is terrified to drive it and it is leased. Does anybody have the same car and is experiencing the problem? Does anybody know what to do in this situation? Does anybody have a general idea about what the problem may be? Help!!!
